Awami League (AL) Joint General Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim today said spreading falsehood is the politics of BNP.
"Telling lies is the only politics of BNP. BNP has no shame, they (leaders of BNP) have forgotten the past in moments. They are promoting power saving policy as power crisis. As long as the war between Ukraine and Russia continues, we will have to go through crises more or less. It is not a crisis of Awami League-led government or Sheikh Hasina's government. It is a crisis happening in the world today. This crisis has created various problems across the globe," he said.
He said this while addressing a conference of Pallabi Thana Awami League and wards number 2, 3, 5, 6 and 91 under the AL's jurisdiction, as the chief guest.
Bahauddin said about 20 thousand crores of money was looted in power section during the BNP regime, he said, adding that the then State Minister for Power Anwarul Talukder of the BNP-Jamaat-e-Islami government openly told the people that.
When Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was in power back in 1996, there was 4,500-megawatt power generation capacity, but when BNP-Jamaat came to power, it (power generation capacity) came down to 3,500mw, he said.
They inaugurated a power plant that shut down within an hour which is still a matter of shame for nation, he added.
With Member of Parliament of Dhaka 16 Constituency and Pallabi Thana unit of Awami League President Elias Uddin Molla in the chair, the conference was addressed, among others, by AL Dhaka City North Unit President Sheikh Bazlur Rahman and General Secretary SM Mannan Kochi.
